Magazine Wrap Survey

Which magazine wrap works best for you?

Subscribers to Wilderness magazine receive their magazine in a plastic wrap that can be recycled in the Love NZ Soft Plastics scheme. This is currently the best way we can protect subscriber copies during the mailing process and keep it safe from the weather.

Is this the best solution for our environment going forward? We’re not sure – but we’re doing our best to look at alternatives as part of a magazine industry initiative.

The magazine industry in New Zealand is exploring all the options – improved recycling options, home compostable alternatives and so on.

There’s no one perfect answer, but the magazine industry is working with resource recovery experts WasteMINZ on a reader survey to help find one.

We want to know what recycling and composting choices you have at your place, and what works best for your lifestyle.

Please take a few minutes now to complete the survey below. If yuou can’t view it easily, you can also find survey on the Magazine Publisher’s Association website.

Your answers will help us make good, informed decisions about this complicated issue. All entries will go into the draw to win a $250 Bunnings voucher and a year’s subscription to the NZ magazine of your choice – including your favourite, Wilderness.
